In Section B of the Component 3: Appraising Exam, students will be expected to complete an extended answer in the form of a short essay that will demonstrate their musical knowledge.

This workbook will help students to develop the skills needed to formulate a structured answer to this question using the PEEL (Point, Evidence, Explanation, Link) paragraph structure. In addition to a 'teacher tips' section, there are 3 related tasks:
– Task 1 will ask students to analyse a sample of musical writing that is written using the PEEL structure, demonstrating ways in which you can incorporate evidence and explanation from the music.
– Task 2 will introduce a second exam style question for students to plan an answer to using a table breaking down the Point, Evidence, Explanation and Link.
– Task 3 will require students to write up their answer to the question, based on the plan they have made in Task 2.

As requested in a review of this resource, a set of Teacher Notes with answers and indicative content has now been included with this resource to aid with teaching and marking.

Update 12/10/2017: Featuring the same content but updated with an all new design that reflects the style and tone of the newer Edexcel GCSE Music worksheet packs. A Teacher Notes document with answers and indicative content has now been added.

Fantastic resource but you need to update the information about the number of times they hear the extracts...they get each one three times now!

This is a really accessible way of approaching section B of the new spec. It would have been even more useful if there had been an answer booklet for teachers notes for the comparison question to refer to when teaching. Is this available?
